Thailand's Fish Species

Imported Fish Species

Amazon Red-tail Catfish

Amazon Redtail CatfishThe Amazon Red-tail Catfish, has risen from relative obscurity in Thailand, to one of its primary target species for the angler in just a few short years. This is not without reason, because as well as being an excellent sport fish that puts up a very spirited battle on rod and line, it is also a very pretty fish, with its body being covered in a suede like skin of beiges, burnt oranges and creams, and it's armoured head being beautifully mottled. Many anglers feel this fish is now one of the primary targets on a trip to Thailand.
